ABOUT THE FILM
Hidden cameras and mikes make us spies as a gonzo Danish journalist bargains for the right to go “beyond all moral boundaries” by buying the post of ambassador from Liberia to the Central African Republic, in order to acquire and transport blood diamonds. With darkly comic flair, he finds that “if you can mix business and politics, wonderful things can happen”. Even a fake businessman can score – at least if he is willing to exploit the hopes of workers, borrow pygmy magic, and risk death in the process.
